Toronto, Canada (WiredPRNews.com) June 20-25, 2011, marks the exciting 7th season of ReelHeART International Film Festival highlighting films from 20 countries around the world.
ReelHeART will screen 92 films over 6 days and nights; scaling back the amount of films this season to add more multiple screenings of anticipated audience favorites.
Opening Day and Closing Night films are stellar examples of what can be achieved in the world of independent filmmaking.
**Official Opening Day Film ReelHeART 2011** from Mumbai, India, ‘Land Gold Women’ directed by Avantika Hari is the story of Nazir Ali Khan a devoted to his family man and professor at the University of Birmingham whose greatest love in life is his 17-year old-daughter Saira. For her future, they both have different plans and this heartbreaking discovery leads to betrayal and gut-wrenching tragedy.
**Official Closing Night Film ReelHeART 2011** from the USA, ‘How I Got Lost’, directed by Joe Leonard is pretty much seamless from beginning to end. Using two rather significant dates for New Yorkers as dramatic pinpoints, (September 11, 2001 and the August 14, 2003 Blackout), this bittersweet drama explores the relationship between two buddies who are in the midst of turmoil and are trying to find happiness and meaning in their lives.
These are only two of the many engaging dramas, laugh out loud comedies, stimulating documentaries and insider views on musician profiles that audiences will find this year that include: the documentary film ‘El Payo’ produced by Rob Barker of the ‘Tragically Hip’, a comedic short film, ‘Moustachette’ written, directed and starring Patrick Stump of ‘Fall Out Boy’ and a harrowing documentary on USA’s involvement in the child sex trade industry from executive producers George Clooney and Grant Heslov, entitled ‘Playground’.
Tune into our feature a ‘Link a Day’ on Twitter to view mini synopsis and trailers. Keep the dates open to the only place to see films this year — the 7th Annual ReelHeART International Film Festival, June 20-25.
